June 15, 2013 Club Meeting and Fly-In


It was a beautiful morning in the Espanola Valley for our monthly meeting and fly-in. 8 members and 1 guest showed up including Alfredo, Pat, Ross, Daren, Jack, Art, Rob, Lisa-Jo, and Marc.

Ross gave the treasurer's report, showed some vintage photos (to be posted elsewhere), and discussed the safety and convenience of having a radio controlled engine kill switch.

Flying conditions were very good with 3-4 mph winds (variable of course).

Rob's unintended ground contact


My policy is not to show carnage unless requested by the plane owner. Rob (or Lisa-Jo) wanted these posted. May the Magic Extra rest in peace! She was a fine plane. (actual crash photo courtesy of Lisa-Jo).

Full Scale


Other guys thought it was a good day to fly too.

Tail number N3504P is a Cessna 172R. Tail number N354SH is a Eurocopter. The other fixed gear, high wing plane I couldn't identify.

Nice pictures guys. It's nice to have another test pilot in the club, less stress for me.

Thanks for the photos of the Tiger Moth Daren. It's a Gee Bee Products kit from the early 90s.
